Throughout the UK, many people suffer from underlying or severe conditions with their skin. These can be extremely irritating, life consuming and stressful to deal with day-to-day. In fact, just from Psoriasis alone, 2% of the world’s population suffer from it, effecting hundreds of millions across the globe. This is why Skin Matters Bristol are here to help the public by providing UVB narrowband light therapy from your very own home. We offer a wide range of UVB narrowband phototherapy units, all of which we can deliver across the whole of the UK.

UVB light therapy at home is not only the most comfortable form of curing your skin, but with this UVB narrowband lamp technology, you can expect to see your skin clear up in a matter of weeks, 6-8 weeks is the average time.
Light therapy for psoriasis at home, alongside the work it can do for eczema, vitiligo and more, means you are in the most comfortable and convenient place possible to access your machine! Treating psoriasis at home means there are no more trips to the doctor or waiting on long waiting lists, we can be in contact about hiring one of our phototherapy machines in a matter of hours! There are also finance options available on our products, meaning you can buy now, pay later!
If you are looking for a psoriasis lamp in the UK, then look no further! Psoriasis light treatment acts the same as a psoriasis sunbed, targeting specific parts of the body, or the whole skin if needs be. We understand that different patients require different needs from our machines, hence our wide range of products and flexibility. Psoriasis light therapy at home is a common solution that thousands of patients have trusted, with incredible results off the back of using our products. Check out some of our testimonials, reliving the stories of hundreds of previous clients who have trusted in the process of using light therapy for psoriasis.
Phototherapy using UVB light is rarely used in the UK because of limited availability and the number of hospital visits required (the backlog with the NHS can leave you waiting a long time). But a study of 200 patients found the same results with home treatment. This is available for you to use 24/7 for the duration of your hire, or if you buy the appliance completely. This takes away the struggle of balancing appointments with doctors or experimenting with other methods such as using sunbeds. Sunbed skin damage is a real factor as to why you should NEVER use these as a skin remedy source.
All our UVB light therapy units are manufactured in England and fitted with genuine, Philips brand narrowband lamps. Only Philips UVB lamps are used in hospitals worldwide, so you can be rest assured that you are receiving only the best and professionally proven UVB technology (always check that the unit contains Philips Lamps). These UVB tubes are the only certified tube in the UK for the treatment of psoriasis, strongly recommended by doctors and dermatologists worldwide who use these themselves. The wavelength used by these machines is 311nm, which is commonly known as the therapeutic wavelength for psoriasis and vitiligo conditions, and therefore why it is recommended highly.
After having chronic psoriasis for the past 8 years, I was really struggling within my own skin.
That’s when I found Skin Matters Bristol and hired the UV light for a number of weeks.
After an 8 week session, I am completely cleared! I highly recommend and commend this company and their products! Thank you Skin Matters Bristol!
How UVB Light Therapy treats Psoriasis
UVB light therapy is an effective treatment for psoriasis, a chronic autoimmune skin condition. Here are some reasons why it is beneficial:
Slows Down Skin Cell Growth: UVB light therapy can slow the rapid growth of skin cells associated with psoriasis. This helps to reduce the formation of psoriasis plaques.
Reduces Inflammation: The treatment helps to reduce inflammation, which is a significant symptom of psoriasis, thereby alleviating redness and irritation.
Suppresses Immune System Activity: Psoriasis is an autoimmune condition, and UVB therapy can help to suppress the overactive immune system response that causes psoriasis symptoms.
Improves Skin Appearance: Regular sessions can lead to a significant improvement in the appearance of the skin, reducing the scaling and thickness of psoriasis plaques.
Non-Invasive Treatment: UVB light therapy is a non-invasive treatment option that can be preferable to systemic medications, which may have more significant side effects.
Effective for Various Types of Psoriasis: This therapy is effective for several types of psoriasis, including plaque psoriasis, guttate psoriasis, and even psoriasis that affects the scalp.
Enhanced Vitamin D Production: Exposure to UVB light boosts vitamin D production in the skin, which is beneficial for overall skin health.
Psychological and Emotional Benefits: Improvement in skin condition can lead to enhanced self-confidence, reduced stress, and overall better quality of life for individuals with psoriasis.
Can Be Combined with Other Treatments: UVB therapy can be used alongside topical treatments and systemic medications for a more comprehensive approach to managing psoriasis.
Long-term Management: It can be used as a long-term treatment option for managing chronic psoriasis, helping to keep symptoms at bay over extended periods.
No VAT To Pay
Here at Skin Matters Bristol, we do not charge VAT for those who suffer with chronic conditions. A chronic condition is a human health condition or disease that is persistent or otherwise long-lasting in its effects or a disease that comes with time. The term chronic is often applied when the course of the disease lasts for more than three months.
No vat to pay for anyone with a chronic condition
